Love me a Charlie Miller soundboard
Love me a Hartford show too.
I understand the authorities weren't as fond, but every Dead show from Hartford has been above average, always, and this is no exception.

If I had my way..
Bertha-> Promised-upbeat rockers
Friend -> CC Rider, -Mellow FOTD>bluesy Rider
Ramble On , -Garcia in excellent voice
Me & My Uncle-> Mexicali , Weir drawls them lyrics
Althea-> Looks Like Rain, Nice Combo--Laid Back
Big Railroad -> Let It Grow -Brent slashing on RxR
Let it Grow always welcomed as a set closer
Rain & Snow-> Samson ,- What a cool combo
"Gather round for your Sunday Sermon"
What is the Gospel? As simple as I can put it,
the Gospel according to the Bible is that God who is rich in mercy has chosen to bridge the gap between Himself and His creation.
The gap is that GOD is holy and that we are fallen creatures.
The gap can’t be bridged by human beings but it was bridged by God thru His only begotten Son. JESUS.
So that is the core of Christianity.
I deserved because of my sin to be eternally separated from a holy GOD. But Christ who lived a sinless life paid for the sin of His people freely gave Himself up that I might spend eternity with The Almighty rather than burning eternally in a Lake of Fire.
So a true Christians righteousness comes from GOD
because it is GOD who saves His people.
I agree with God that I should always do the right thing but in my flesh I still do wrong, and at times make poor choices but I want to do the right thing to honor the God who saves.
"Great God ALMIGHTY"
Does Weir do the slide on Samson?
Ship of Fools,-Sing it Jerry!
Playin'-> Eyes-> Drums-> Jam*-> Other One-> Peter->
Sugar Magnolia-> Playin'-> Sunshine Daydream,

First GD Show. Went to the show the show, still not sure I ever left. (sometimes)
I remember 4-18-1982 well, No not like yesterday but close enough. We were seated in the nosebleed section of the Hartford Civic Center, we didn't care, we were in.
First time I ever heard Althea and Cold Rain & Snow.
Way too difficult to explain the sensory overload I was experiencing at the time.

Opening notes - "San Francisco open your Golden Gate" ! Musical genius, right up there with My Old Kentucky Home licks in BIODTL from Louisville 74. Great times in Hurtford

got two reasons why...
awesome FOTD. The solo at the end is that dreamy feel good kind that only one other guitar player has ever given me....

I thought Playing in the Band > Eyes of the World was an unusual combination. Turns out I was (kind of) right. For as many times as those two songs were played, they were only played in the same set 37 times. Up to this show, this exact combination occured only twice, and they don't get played together in the same set again for another 5 years. At that point, and through the end, this combination occurs more frequently when the two songs are played.
Hey guys, I was there for both of these shows and recorded both. My audience Masters are excellent sounding. Been listening back for the last 2 days and just visited Archive to see whats out there on these. 1982 was a great year. Big R X R Blues was outstanding...Phil Quake rocked the house. Too redundant??

civic center earthquake
yeah, a buddy of mine tells me that Chris Squire, from Yes, did the same thing at the Hartford Civic Center during his bass solo... its a certain note which has the frequency to totally shake that place.....

The Day the Earth Shook
I was at this show, my memories of all these shows during this period is very sketchy due to too many drugs. But going through these dates and listening to these again does bring things back. I remember the 2 day Hartford gig, and the first day was the only time in my life that I DIDN'T get a miracle, and me and a couple hundred other poor saps spent the night with our ears up against the cracks of the doors while the cops came around in paddy wagons scooping up the ones who couldn't run away fast enough. Fortunately, I was fleet of foot and dodged the bastards all night.
The second night I was inside. Now that I listen to it, I remember the Bertha really did rip and the joint was jumping for sure. But the thing I remember most was the great Hartford Earthquake of 1982. I don't know what the hell they did, but they made the whole arena shake, twice, just like a quake. I think it was Phil who did it, but by the time anyone realized what was happening, it was done. It may have been that big ass drum they used to have during that period that made the building shake, but I don't think so, it felt different. You obviously can't hear the quake on the recording, but I think if you weren't there, you can get the idea when it happened. Everyone was looking around going what the hell was that, to which the response was something like "It's the eathquake man" to which the response was of course, "oh, right on"
I'll grant through listening to this show that it sounds like a good piece of work, but for whatever reason, except for the earthquake, it didn't stick with me like that 2nd day in philly two weeks earlier with the best shakedown ever, a lovely terrapin and a glorious dew. That was one helluva dead show right there bro.
As to the recording quality, whatever I'll let you techie types argue that. Sounds pretty good to me.

jewwwwwwwel to the ring of fire!
This is an awesome show!
I particularly like the Ship of Fools.
Though the intracies of the Phil Earthquake can be heard better on this SBD I find the overall effect of the space jam to be fuller on the AUD - much better.
One of the few times I would have shouted "let Phil sing!"
The show gets a 5 but the recording gets a 3 so...
February 24, 2005 Subject:
There's a real nice AUD recording of this show up now... no reviews yet. I have been comparing the two, and the AUD is making this one sound like it was recorded under water.
Judge for yourself.

Jerry's guitar work at this show is amazing. Listen to his solo in "Let it Grow". I had to drop all I was doing to hear it again. Amazing. Get this show now.
December 14, 2004 Subject:
Get this show for Phil's totally spaced out Space alone. Then you get the rare, killer combo of Sugar Mags>Playin>SSDD! Too bad they come back out for a Don't Cheese Me In encore... "Hey guys, didn't you play this encore last spring when you came to our city?"
December 11, 2004 Subject:
Vintage 1982. Every song cooks. And what a song selection!
Combined with the night before and after, a pristine snapshot of what the Grateful Dead could do.

I still have the ticket stubs for these shows...
I was a senior at Simsbury High School in CT and had been going to Dead shows for two years when I plunked down my $11.50 per ticket and attended this show as well as the night before (check out that nighs 'Shakedown' and killer 'Baby Blue' encore). Yes that's right, $11.50 for reserved seating and 8 bucks for behind the stage...those were the days.... Ah, well, anyway.. YES! it was a blast. I've referred to it for years as the 'Earthquake" show. It might have been the shroomies, but it felt as if the whole place was shaking. I still have a worn-out audience version on cassette, but it's great to finaly get a soundboard CD. Aiko-Aiko!

If I Had My Way, I Would Tear This Whole Building DOOOWWN!!
Wow folks. This show is presents the Grateful Dead as the powerhouse rock band they were. Theyre rocking from the get go. First set is grate. Everything is just right and rocking. Althea is sweet. Cowboy songs are grate. LLR Bobby!! Big RxR Blues is so much fun with Jerry ripping some grate solos and Brent ripping it up on the Hammond. An epic version of Let it Grow very nice. The real fireworks of course are in the Second Set. Ok Cold Rain and Snow, but Samson is amazing, they are all rocking. Bobby is in amazing form with the vocals and his rhythm and slide work should be studied by all rhythm guitarists. Of course Jerry is just ripping, Phil, Brent, the Rhythm Devils. An all time powerhouse version of Samson. Ship of Fools is one of Jerry's best songs and this is a good version. Playing in the Band is awesome, they get out there fast and it is a mindbender for under 10 min. Eyes is nice esp the jam into Drums. Phil is hysterical in Space. Post Space is sweet. It doesnt seem like this really happened. I was a year old when they played this show so I wasnt there. Mustve been a blast! A Must Have.

Believe the Hype
This show is good, maybe even great...the Althea, Ramble On, and Ship of Fools are great versions. The meat of the 2nd set is worth the burn...

Pass this show up at your own peril! This is an oustanding show in any year. Everything sparkles. Garcia is in excellent voice and plays like a man possesed. This board sounds amazing (thanks Charlie!) and features and excellent well balanced mix. Better show and mix all around than Dicks Picks 32.

i remember this show fondly and had lost the cherished cassette sometime in the summer of '88, which was probably one of my few boards at the time.
great recording and definitely great early 80's brent dead.

Extremely grateful to Jonathan Aizen for uploading both Hartford '82 shows, as well as the Baltimore Civic Center the following night.
They all sound great and are all-time classics.
